When launcher icons are resized, the triangle indicators should resize too.

Bug Description

My ideal icon size is 38px, however there is no way to scale down the triangle indicators. They appear bigger when the icons get smaller. As a result, you tend to notice them more than the icons.

subscribed Andrea Azzarone who worked on the launcher resize feature to see if he might be interested to work though I am not sure if the chevron should be smaller/larger depending on the case. but of course there are people with much better views than mine.

IMHO, it should. It's really distracting because it draws too much attention when the icons are small. Besides, it's the only thing that doesn't dynamically scale when resizing the launcher. The launcher bar, icon container, and icons themselves do so it's just fitting that it should also.

Thanks Omer! Also according to me the chevron should not be smaller/larger depending on the case. But I am not the right person to decide... According to me it needs design feedback.
